What exactly is Microblading?

Microblading is a semi permanent cosmetic tattoo that is applied with a very fine bundle of needles, a hand tool and cosmetic pigment, mimicking the natural hair of an eyebrow. This method can be used to fill in gaps, cover scars, or create a more flattering shape. Microblading makes it possible to transform any eyebrows into the closest thing to naturally perfect.

When done properly and following aftercare, it creates a soft and natural illusion of a real brow. The pigments used in this method have been formulated to match your original eyebrow color, and if the eyebrows are still present, blend perfectly into the existing hairs. 

The results are a natural, flawless, fuller looking brow. Initially, the brow appears darker, but fade significantly over a two week period. It is crucial to have a touch up done, as it is very difficult to predict how well the skin will retain the pigment. 

The results can last anywhere from 1 to 3 years, depending on different factors such as clients skin type, sun exposure and chemicals contained in creams and beauty products applied to the skin which could fade and break down the pigment sooner. A retouch once a year is recommended to retain the shape and freshen the color. 

How do I prepare?

  • The goal is for the skin to be as insensitive to the procedure as possible to limit bleeding.
  • Do not drink coffee, alcohol or energizing drinks on the day of treatment. 
  • Do not take Aspirin, Niacin, Vitamin E or Ibuprofen 24 hours before treatment. (If you bleed excessively the pigment will not hold well)
  • Do not take omega3 (fish oil) 1 week before treatment. 
  • Do not tan or have intense sun exposure 5 days before treatment. 
  • No waxing 2-3 days before treatment. 
  • No chemical peels, dermabrasion, laser or any other intense treatments 2 weeks before treatment. 
  • If you use Botox, It should be preformed at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment or at least 2 weeks after.     
  • If you are a frequent smoker the topical anesthetic will not last as long.
  • Extra care not to get your brows wet for several days.  You can cover your brows with plastic wrap when showering.   
  • If you think you may be allergic or too sensitive, I offer a patch test a week prior to the tattoo appointment. 
  • Come to your appointment with your eyebrows penciled the way you like them (optional).

What do I need to do for aftercare?

After care is crucial, and it is very important to follow the aftercare instructions thoroughly during the healing period to ensure proper healing and color retention. Results will vary for all individuals and we cannot guarantee your results from improper care.

Failure to follow post-procedure instructions may cause loss of pigment, discoloration or infection.
